As warm days are keeping coming we are adding some new positions on the menu at our Eimsbuttel store. As always we are pretty puzzled how to determine what is a proper time for a summer menu thus we decided to check the common definitions.
As we`ve found there is no "official rule" which definition of summer to use, and different countries adhere to different conventions. Most of North America and Europe use astronomical summer, while Australia and New Zealand use meteorological summer.
In the astronomical calendar the start and end dates of summer are based on the changing position of Earth in relation to the sun and the resulting solar events of equinoxes and solstices. In the Northern Hemisphere spring ends and summer starts at the moment of the June solstice , which occurs every year between June 20 and June 22. Summer ends and autumn starts at the moment of the September Equinox, which occurs every year on September 21 to 23.
Based on this info, we`ve still got some time to get lazy and start with summer'19 menu really slow. This weekend we will take off with adding the most frequently asked position aka New York Cheesecake. Cause we've been craving some bears and berries for a month now, we came up with a recipe with plenty of fresh straweberry sauce. We've decided to omit bears for this time and leave them just among the pages of our favourite NSM magazine. But we will see how long they will stay there. So, while we are waiting for bears, come over and lets enjoy some first hot days, new set of seasonal coffees and drowning under straweberry sauce New York Cheesecake.
